• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Justflight PA28 for Xplane instrument changes

Hi FS Developers,

Hope all is well during these difficult times and apols for the spam if this is not the correct forum.

I fly a Piper Arrow out of Coventry in the UK. I can't fly at the moment because the airfield is closed. During lockdown I wanted to keep up to date with my IFR approaches so now have Xplane 11 and the PA28 Arrow III aircraft from Justflight. Everything is great but the instruments don't quite match those in the real aircraft that I fly so I would like to change them. eg move the DI and replace it with an HSI and change the ADF,DME, radios and GPS.

I did some research and understand that Xplane planemaker provides a GUI which should allow this. However, when I load up the aircraft in Xplane plane maker I cannot see the cockpit instruments for the Arrow.
I have the Piper Warrior from Justflight too and that displays the instruments in plane maker so what is going on ?

I'm told it's easy if the instruments already exist but I cannot see how at the moment. I have basic IT skills so if you feel you can help or do it for me a there is a free 1 hour flight in the Arrow on offer so you can try your Sim skills in the air and/or try flying a complex if you are already a pilot.

Thanks Simon
